The Global Cannabis Packaging Market size is estimated to reach USD 6.57 billion, from USD 1.75 billion in 2019, delivering a CAGR of 26.4% through 2027, according to a recent analysis.

The market growth is driven by the increasing legalization of cannabis and hemp-based CBD products across several countries, which, in turn, is bolstering the demand for cannabis packaging.
